Once you are here, you’ll know why the locals are smiling. When we offer you a glass of our wine, you’ll realize that you will be holding something as impressive as our mountain landscape. This may be the Peach State, but grapes are our passion, and the clusters in our vineyards produce award-winning wines, which are gaining national recognition and fueling the emergence of North Georgia as a prominent wine region. Come taste a perfect day in Georgia, and discover the passion that you’ve been missing...
Our mountains provide the perfect place to escape the ordinary and embrace the exceptional. You can be active in your pursuit of outdoor excursions from golfing and mountain biking to back-country hiking, camping, and rafting. We also boast some of the best places for relishing relaxation and indulgence. Experience the luxury of an area bed and breakfast or country inn, browse our antique stores and local art galleries, and savor the cuisine of both casual and fine dining options nestled in our Georgia wine country.
Our mountains combine the perfect terrain, soil, drainage, and elevation necessary for our vineyards to produce wines that reveal this “sense of place,” or terroir, which separates our wines from those made in other geographically diverse regions. Our soil composition is very much like that of Italy’s Piedmont region, which produces some of the most prestigious wines in the world. Come taste what happens when Georgia sunshine and mountain soils meet Viognier and Merlot grapes…we’re certain that you’ll be smiling, too.
WHO WE ARE
We are the Winegrowers Association of Georgia, a non-profit corporation organized to promote and market Georgia wine, to improve the market environment for Georgia wines, to increase public awareness of Georgia wines, and to facilitate research in Georgia viticultural and vinification techniques to improve our already noteworthy Georgia wines. Annual members must qualify with a minimum of five acres in Georgia of vinifera or French-American grapes in production, or with a minimum of 1,000 cases of wine produced annually from Georgia-grown vinifera or French-American grapes. Our member wineries are dedicated to these founding principles and our diligent adherence to them validates our declaration of “Georgia's Fine Wine Producers.”
